Beautiful, quant retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband had the grand idea to spend our 1st anniversary seeing the sights and exploring The Falls, I'm more of a beach girl so I wasn't really looking forward to the trip. When I ran across this place I was sold! The view was amazing and I could see him and I enjoying nights on the dock in the rocking chairs. Plans changed and our kids had to come along as well and this place was still amazing and worked out just fine for the 5 of us! The kids had a blast in the water and watching the sail boat races. I loved cooking in the beautiful kitchen and snuggling with my hubby in a nice big comfy bed with a beautiful view! This place was AMAZING! Bev and Dan were even sweet enough to leave us a bottle of champagne to help celebrate our special day! I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else and HIGHLY recommend this beautiful get away to anyone in search of a home away from home while on vacation!

Beautiful home with amazing lakefront views

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at this beautiful home which is even nicer than the photos. There's a lot to do with many vineyards, Niagara Falls, Buffalo and Lockport nearby. We were sad to leave, want to come back next summer.

Peaceful home with wonderful views

  • 4 of 5

House is beautifully landscape. Back yard has a great deck and a large porch. On a clear day you can see Toronto. We saw plenty of freighters passing by and was lucky enough to see a few sailboats. Sunsets on the lake are beautiful. Unfortunately the lake was very ruff, so we were not able to swim. The waves were so large you would think you were at the beach. The kitchen was sized well enough to cook, loved the updated oven. Livingroom had plenty of room for the 4 of us and our dog to hang out in. Like having the 2 large bathrooms. No issues with WiFi. Easy to get to the Falls and some great restaurants. Overall the house was a great vacation .

There were a few reasons I didn't give it 5 stars

1) wished kitchen had more staple items (like sugar for coffee )

2) the sleeper is a blowup bed that once blown up took away from the large master room, we couldn't use the doors to the porch.

3) being short was hard to reach alot of stuff in cabinets above the stove

4) rug infront of livingroom porch door made it pain to open and close the door.

The above items were not enough to effect our vacation. We really enjoyed our stay.

Awesome retreat

  • 5 of 5

This lake cottage was beautiful. The pictures do not do it justice. Beautiful sunsets, relaxing morning coffee on the porch. Good location to explore the Niagara wine trail even hopped to Canada for Niagara Falls. Go to the Black Willow winery for a wine and chocolate tasting. Bev and Dan were great hosts.

The views of Lake Ontario were amazing, especially the sunsets and the view of the Toronto skyline was cool! We enjoyed our stay and seeing Niagara Falls, Old Fort Niagara and even our adventure into Toronto! We are looking forward to coming back soon! Thanks again!
